Chip White is one of the best drummers hands down. Hell, I knew that when I first heard him play with his father and uncle when he was just a boy of about 8 years-old, at a July 4th parade in Peekskill. Got to know Chip in my mother's nursery school. Really proud of you dude!

Hey Chip, I'm your cousin that heard you without listening to your music. I knew I was an extension of your family. I have a sound mind and love music with real instruments. I stopped playing when I was in 7th grade because I felt no rhythm hitting a wood block with rubber on top. I watched my uncle Clark and Gilbert play in the parades and I will never forget that. My coworker listens to jazz and I thought of you. Best wishes till the next time I see you and maybe we will connect as family instead of mingling. Cheers big cousin and best wishes!

Who would've thought; from the Carl Lerario combo to fame and fortune. I'm in awe, but always knew you had it in you. I don't play guitar anymore, took early retirement from business and am now a minister. Shocking, I know. Send me an email if you get a minute. Bless you, brother.

I was the opening act in Po'Jazz at Cornelia Street Cafe on June 19th. It was truly a magical experience. Words cannot express my gratitude for your amazing accompaniment. The performance was captured on digital camera. Would you object to me uploading the film onto You Tube? Of course you and Cecelia would be credited on the site. Hoping our paths cross again in the very near future, I remain eternally grateful. Dorothy Saraceno

What's up, old buddy. Still playing. Would love to see you one of these days. Nice website and music.
January 12, 2008
As always you look as good as the music you play which means you look great. 5 years ago we have moved to Washington State, near Olympia. I always have that picture in my mind of you when you marched in those 4th of July parades in our home town. Found you by checking out Mr. Corzine's web site. I didn't realize what a treasure he was and You, Mike,and Ray are a great example the jewels he has touched.
Hi there, and Happy Xmas - do you remember me - we played music together with Marina Fiorentini in 1982 - all the best - Zandy... Worldgig.com

Tampa book club of 8 says: Jazz Poems is a wonderful work of talent, very positive, shows abundant insight, unique, exciting and historical, an outstanding teaching tool, relives the artists' music, very modestly titled, descriptive with clever rhymes. This is a must read!!!
